76ers get No. 1 pick from Celtics, chance to draft Markelle Fultz

The news was announced this past weekend when Markelle Fultz delayed his plans to travel to Boston to meet with the Celtics and instead had to detour his plans to Philly. Starting in 1985, the National Basketball Association implemented a lottery system in order to determine which team receives the No. 1 overall pick in that year's draft.

Colangelo said he had discussed the Lakers' 2018 pick, which former GM Sam Hinkie secured for Michael Carter-Williams, with Celtics assistant GM Mike Zarren for "a year and a half, it seems". "The timing of the deal and the protections on the pick suggests both teams were negotiating on common grounds". I have a good relationship with Bryan Colangelo and Jerry Colangelo and I think they're doing a fantastic job there in Philadelphia. The team will receive a 2018 or 2019 draft pick from the 76ers, depending where the 2018 pick ultimately falls.

Lonzo Ball of UCLA is expected to go No. 2 to the Lakers, although the sides have yet to reach agreement on a deal. I'm a pretty good shot blocker for a point guard, so I think helping them with that, everything would pretty much help with that. But Ainge doesn't believe that will happen, or he wouldn't have made the trade. While there have been inquires on the No. 2 pick, sources said it remains unlikely the Lakers would trade out of that position.

But the Sixers undoubtedly view their successful trade with the Celtics in which the Sixers have nabbed the No. 1 overall pick from Boston, as their biggest one yet.

The Sixers get the player that best fits their needs at No. 1.

It will mark the second straight year that Philadelphia selects first overall.

The Celtics, who reportedly are equally enamored with two forwards in this year's draft - Kansas' Josh Jackson and Duke's Jayson Tatum - are still attempting to schedule workouts.

Philadelphia and Boston have agreed on a trade where the 76ers would acquire the chance to take Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

While Ainge isn't going to admit it, Fultz is likely the player they would have selected if they kept the top pick. "They don't know if they'll be able to, but their hope is they'll be able to use the No. 3 pick, get themselves Jimmy Butler, go into free agency, get Gordon Hayward. and making a legitimate run at the Cleveland Cavaliers".

Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game for the Huskies, who stumbled to a 9-22 record. But I think we're still moving on the same path. ... But the addition of Fultz to a talented albeit unproven young core that includes Simmons, center Joel Embiid and power forward Dario Saric would certainly make the 76ers one of the NBA's most intriguing teams next season.
